We are more than mothers.
We are more together.

IAMAS wants to help all mothers get the support they need. Empowered moms can self-advocate, get access to government- and business-based support, and work for the good of the majority. Join us to support us.

Educate. Advocate. Unite.

IAMAS is dedicated to women, mothers, and families.

IAMAS’ roots are as an academic organization (formerly MIRCI), but our members are more than just scholars. We are activists from dozens of countries who want to help all moms be their best selves. We strive to increase meaningful conversation among maternal advocates regardless of their field or experience. We are affiliated with Journal of the Motherhood Initiative and Demeter Press.


Our Vision

IAMAS envisions a world in which all mothers are supported by their families, communities, businesses, and governments via a cultural belief that mothering and mothers matter as well as and through strongly funded research that aids in the implementation of policies that help mothers thrive. 

Our Mission

International Association of Maternal Action and Scholarship is a scholar-activist, interdisciplinary, non-profit organization designed to promote empowered mothering via research on and advocacy for (and with) mothers. This work is rooted in a belief that mothers who are supported by their families, communities, businesses, and governments thrive and help their child(ren) thrive.


Are you a kickass feminist who wants to share research about motherhood?

This year’s conference theme, “Caring About Mothers Before, During, and After Covid,” is designed to let academics, lawyers, artists, writers, birth practitioners, activists and more share new ideas with other experts while getting three days of inspiration, knowledge, and networking. We will be meeting virtually due to Covid. Oct 2-4, 2020.
